TSMC mass-produced the 3nm process late last year, but the first generation of the 3nm process, the N3, is so expensive and has so little capacity that only deep-pocked Apple will debut it. No one else will use the 3nm process until next year's second-generation N3E.
Qualcomm's new flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen3 this year (abbreviated as Snapdragon 8G3, the official name should be the third generation Snapdragon 8) can not grab 3nm production capacity, so Qualcomm will continue to use Taiwan Semiconductor 4nm,However, there are several versions of the latter, and this time it is likely to use the better N4P, with a 6% performance boost.
At the same time, the Snapdragon 8G3 architecture will also be overhauled. The current Snapdragon 8G2 is a 1+4+3 architecture with a Cortex-X3 core for its supersized core, while the Snapdragon 8G3 will be upgraded to a Cortex-X4 supersized core with 5 Cortex-A720s for its large core and 2 Cortex-A520 for its small core.
Due to the increased architecture and number of large and very large cores,The Snapdragon 8G3 will see a bigger performance boost than its predecessor, by around 35%,GK5 single core runs close to 2000 points, is still the Android ceiling.
As for the previous rumor that Snapdragon 8G3 frequency can reach 3.72GHz, considering the current technology level, basically impossible, still around 3.2GHz.
